A Proposed new Bridge Linking the BC Mainland to Vancouver Island


SHOW MORE


The last bit of nation building in the east-west linking of Canada is a bridge to Vancouver Island.
The proposal is outlined to link the Sea-to-Sky highway to Vancouver Island by first building a bridge to the Sun-Shine coast just north of Bowen Island, then to use the existing highway system until just adjacent to Texada Island. From there to build a series of smaller bridges to island hop from the British Columbia Main land to Vancouver Island to Parksville.
The existing Vancouver Island highway then completes the project.
The estimated cost for this project is $ 6 billion and will take five to six years to complete.
If this project is given top priority it could be completed by 2017, the 150th anniversary of the establishment of the Dominion of Canada.

Perhaps it can be called the Queen Victoria Bridge in honour of the sovereign who granted Royal Approval to the establishment of the Dominion of Canada.
